What we missed

Looks like Daniel Tosh actually does think assaulting women is funny.

Target will not be stocking our darling Frank Oceans debut album. Boo on them. 

Lady philanthropists are creating their own change by donating to new and innovative people and visions, including Courtney Martin.

And on that lovely note, always remember that we do this as a labor of love and sometimes we want to pay our bills so any little bit helps.

    I was unable to donate through paypal. Anyone else run into the same problem?

    Gotta love(by which I mean disdain and despise) the commenter on the Daniel Tosh trying to claim this is no different than South Park. Because it’s totally possible for an animated, two-dimensional and completely fictional character like Kyle or Cartman comes up and physically touch someone like that. Where’s that video?

    Great roundup of links!! Assaulting women is funny sounds interesting. I’d definitely look into it.

    Arent there laws against encouraging people to commit crime? I guess that train is gone now that all of rap got a pass. On the other hand Ice-T never told his fans to videotape themselves killing a cop.

    In defense on Tosh, his concept was always that to be edgy. Going in you cant expect that the humour will be always at the expense of prolifers, republicans, conservatives or masculinists or some other group you love to hate. However he shouldnt act offended when people get offended over his edgy humour, after all its pretty much his concept.

      It isn’t edgy to make fun of victims of rape. Rape isn’t “edgy.” Making fun of rape, when your show has suggested men send in videos of themselves touching women without their consent isn’t edgy. Being edgy is a subversive activity. 1 in 4 women in this country is raped in their lifetime. Every woman lives in fear of rape to where they have to not do shit they want to do in order to avoid being sexually assaulted. Making fun of a horror that we’re no where near to solving and that has branded terror on the minds of women for generations when you have never known that experience or even that fear, is not edgy.
